When it comes to raising children today, it can be both a great joy and an ultimate challenge.
It is our belief that you can’t do it alone (neither could we). That is why our approach in our Preschool and Children’s Ministry is to partner with you, your children, and your entire family.
We are passionate about providing ministries for young children that nurture each developmental stage, and that foster their experience of God’s love by teaching them about God’s amazing grace and the meaningful essentials of the Christian faith. We also believe it is important to give your children opportunities to participate in worship experiences, and to offer support and education for you, so that you may foster spiritual growth in your children through your everyday life experiences.
Nursery serves children from birth through their Pre-Kindergarten year and is provided year-round, during both Church School and Worship hours.
Classes are divided by age:
Infants (birth through approximately 12 to 15 months) are cared for in the Infant Room. We believe that faith education begins at birth, so babies at Calvary learn trust and security through the love and care provided by our nursery staff. They also enjoy listening to songs and participating in interactive play with our infant workers.
Toddlers (children who are confident walkers through 35 months) are cared for in the Toddlers ministry. In this classroom, young children are exposed to simple songs and ‘finger plays,’ movement activities, and interactive Bible stories geared to their age. Simple art and sensory learning activities are used to teach Bible lessons and early prayer skills. We also provide support that helps you nurture their experience, including activities you can engage in at home.
Preschool cares for children ages three through Pre-Kindergarten.
At this level, Preschoolers are exposed to a range of Bible stories through active, hands-on play and learning activities. Crafts, music, snacks and games are used to engage learners.
At Calvary, we witness and believe in the fact that Bible truths become more meaningful when accessed through direct learning experiences. Our Preschool activities help the children expand their understanding of God's love and develop an excitement about being at church, while also reinforcing essential Biblical messages.
We also give you, as their parents, meaningful activities you can implement at home that help your children continue to build their understanding of the Bible, as well as early prayer and worship skills within the family setting.
